FOR THE WEEK OF NOV. 17, 2016
DEPARTMENT CASE NUMBER: 16C79206
LEAD DETECTIVE: DETECTIVE CROWE, WICHITA POLICE DEPARTMENT

Around 10:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 11, a woman in the Dillons parking lot at 47th and Broadway was loading groceries into her vehicle. A man, who made her feel uneasy, acted as if he was going to get into a nearby vehicle. She grabbed for her purse in the shopping cart at the same time he did. He dragged her to the ground as she fought for her purse, and pulled her toward a nearby vehicle. The victim said a woman was sitting on the passenger side of the early 2000s white Ford Explorer. When she reached over to open the driver’s side door for the suspect, she told him to “hit her.” The suspect pushed the victim down again, and she let go of the purse. The victim sustained injury to her legs, back and head.

Her loss included a cellphone, checks, credit cards and keys.

The suspect and his accomplice drove east on 47th Street South. He is described as a tall white man with brown hair and weighing about 150 pounds.
